O challenge at PWCO!


It's Friday folks! And you know what that means (besides TGIF!)??

It's Recipe Challenge over at PaperWorks Co.! It's the end of June/ beginning of July so that means it's my last recipe challenge for a while. Come July, I'll be switching it up to a different kind of challenge on a different day so stay tuned!

So for this recipe challenge, it's all about the letter O. Orange, octagon, 'other' embellishments! By the way, if you didn't notice all the other challenges spelled out P W C O! The first two were combined: Pic inspired and Water-themed. The third one was about Critters, Cuties, Colors!

For my O challenge at PaperWorks Company, I chose Ollie the octopus (since we're going for the O's and all :)). I made an octagon-shaped card, and the main colors were orange -- I bet you haven't seen orange octopus before, huh? LOL! For the embellishments, I chose flowers with 8 sides to keep with the octagon theme. I saved up the cut corners from the papers and made waves. As you can see, my card's all about playing with shapes -- octagons, swirls, spikes, etc.

This card is definitely unique and I'm quite happy with it! In fact, I think that with the orange and bright colors, I can't help but smile! This is going to one of my nephews whose birthday is coming up.
